The vast majority of our clients do not hear about a cosmetic procedure and then just request a treatment session. They usually take the time to learn about the treatment or product and then consider all of the pros and cons. They want to fully understand the benefits and disadvantages that come with each treatment. If you are interested in getting rid of a double chin, Kybella® may be able to help you.
What is Kybella®?
Kybella® is currently the only product available specifically designed to treat submental fullness, or excess fat underneath the chin. Kybella® has received approval by the FDA exclusively for this. It gives our clients confidence to know that this unique injectable has gone through many extensive tests and trials. And since it has been approved by the FDA, patients can rest assured that they are likely to get fantastic results with the product.
When it comes to getting rid of a double chin, there are two main treatments that are available right now. First, there is Kybella®. Second, there is liposuction. The biggest difference between these two treatments is that one is surgical and the other is nonsurgical. While liposuction can provide wonderful results, not everyone wants or qualifies for surgery. Kybella® is administered through a series of injections. Using a nonsurgical treatment to get rid of a double chin offers a wide variety of benefits, including the fact that it requires little to no downtime.
How Does Kybella® Work?
Kybella® is made with deoxycholic acid, which is naturally produced by the human body. Deoxycholic acid helps breaks down dietary fat. When injected as part of your treatment, it will go to work targeting and destroying the fat cells in the area. Once these cells have been destroyed, they will no longer be able to store fat. Eventually, they will naturally be flushed out by the body. All you have to do is enjoy as you watch your profile gradually become slimmer and slimmer.
Kybella® is known for both its effectiveness and its convenience. The number of treatments you will need will depend on your personal situation and aesthetic goals, but clients usually see best results after a series of treatments. Most people who are in generally good health and would like to get rid of their double chin make good candidates for this treatment.
